    On March 1st I am going to switch from cingular to Verizon. These are my
    requirements:

    Data capable (want to hook it to my laptop to retrieve email)
    National coverage - no roaming and no long distance charges
    Speaker phone
    Sync with PC
    Data capable with IPaq 3900 (use it as a modem, is this possible?)

    What does the group suggest?

    Thanks
    Jack

    Jeb, sign on. Verizon works good on-line if you are in their network. If
    you are not intheir network then you may or may not get on-line in with your
    own isp or theirs. good luck

    Strike "may or" - you may be able to get online with the older 14.4 Quick2Net
    service, which is very slow, IF the roaming partner supports Verizon customers
    doing it. You WILL NOT be able to use NationalAccess or BroadbandAccess AFAIK.

    ; Data capable (want to hook it to my laptop to retrieve email)

    Practically any phone Verizon carries. There may be exceptions, so
    check to make sure it's capable of either "NationalAccess", Verizon's
    high speed wireless data network.

    ; National coverage - no roaming and no long distance charges

    This is a function of the plan, not the phone. Any of the "America's
    Choice", "National Singlerate" or most of the "NationalAccess" plans
    will do.

    ; Sync with PC

    Synch what? Some will back up to the desktop, but if you want real
    synching of your phone book with your contacts list, get a SmartPhone.

    ; Data capable with IPaq 3900 (use it as a modem, is this possible?)

    Get a SmartPhone and retire the IPaq. I like PalmOS, but if you prefer
    PocketPC, then get one of those instead. Verizon has two or three
    available.

    The SmartPhone route is probably your best route to go with what you're
    looking for. You can get more details on the smartphones available by
    going to http://pdaphonehome.com and looking up the full specs of the
    phone you're interested in.

    If even that fails, I can still dial my own ISP at the same speed as Q2N,
    right?
